Computer Applications for Converting STEM Documents to Braille and Other Formats
Accessible Computer Applications for Reading and Writing Math
- Accessing Graphical Information with IVEO SVG by John Gardner, shows how nearly any graphical information can be made excellently accessible with the ViewPlus IVEO technology.
- Analyzing Scalable Vector Graphics Images
is a detailed article by contributor Pranav Lal on understanding SVG code. He uses several tools including the IVEO SVG authoring/reading system and VOICe, the graphics audio tone display method.
- Prof. Richard Baldwin has added a section
If You Can Imagine It, You Can Draw It using SVG
to his blind-accessible web physics textbook. "The study of physics is replete with requirements to create and analyze technical drawings. This is obviously more difficult for blind students than for sighted students. However, blind students can draw technical diagrams and the purpose of this module is to show you how. If you can imagine it, you can draw it using SVG".
